                                                                     PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE            

        I was pleased to see so many in attendance at our January 2018 meeting held at Casa Mia. 

The installation of the 2018–2019 Board went very well.  I would like to thank Judge William Franks, a Shields member and Stony Point Town Justice, for administering the oath of office to the new Board of Officers.  I also extend a very special “Thank You” to Tim Connolly, Sr, for administering the oath of office to me. 

Mark Murphy will be a tough act to follow.  He is dedicated to the Shields - and he is very organized.  I thank him for all his help. 

As I mentioned at the meeting, the people that make up the Shields’ Board do quite a bit of work.  The events run by this organization are the results of that work.  Don’t miss out.  Check the “CALENDAR” in this newsletter for times and dates.  And remember – there is room on EVERY committee. 

Lastly, we continuously see alarming news reports about acts of violence against law enforcement officers.  There were so many in this last week that I have lost count.  And it’s not just happening in the big cities. 
Active members  - be vigilant, wear your vest, and go home after each tour. 

We pray every day for the safe return of those who protect us.
